A fun story about creatures of the night and the Good Guy's should always win type attitude. The ending was a bit loose in it's structure and focus. Kind of like the author knew in his head what he wanted to say but for whatever reason, it didn't translate well to paper.
This would be a great story to read to a 5th grade class or as a bed time story for an older child. Lots of moral lessons about "right and wrong". Some of the perceptions of parents and teachers are a bit cliche (oblivious, goofily drunk parents and mean teachers/administrators that really don't listen, just like to punish and control.
It was nice that one of the main characters was gay but he was a cliche as much as the most evil character being a latent homosexual (felt a warm rush for the gay character but was "ashamed" of his feelings. If the main Hero (James) made a declaration that "I'm Not Gay" (not that there's anything wrong with it" one more time, I did think I was going to puke.
The last page of the story where we find out there's a mysterious man in a yellow slicker who it seems has set this whole scenario up was a true indicator that 1) there wasn't an editor and 2) this writer has little to no experience. Again, this author and his love for Cliche.
I think I have never read a book with so many typos (not to mention several grammar mistakes): your/you're - were/we're - their/they're - then/than - its/it's - plural 's' and Saxon genitive ''s' were CONSTANTLY misused so as to hinder comprehension. Random mispellings and curious grammar mistakes which could not be attributed to a bad (very, very bad) spell check programme added to the general shabbiness of the whole.
And yet this is a pity. Despite a weak ending, short, hurried and unsatisfying, this novel was very well plotted and well written. The writing was a bit clumsy and conventional at the beginning, with some unnecessary repetitions, but it got quickly more and more convincing. Characterization might not be the most original ever heard but it was well thought of and detailed. The setting was interesting as well and some good humour seasoned the whole of it.
This is why a novel probably conceived for YA did not fail to interest and entertain me. This author clearly has talent: let us hope he becomes a little more fastidious about editing.
The story revolves around several teenagers who discover Wherewolves in their town and how they work to get rid of them. It is pretty action oriented from the start, right to a somewhat surprise ending that seems to lead to another, further, book on the same kids. Well worth reading and quite enjoyable. There is very sensitive treatment of one of the kids who is gay.
